Goshen, VA, Hummingbird Inn Bed and Breakfast
From Mid-Atlantic Getaways Magazine:
"From your first view of the white picket fence, unique Carpenter Gothic fašade, wrap-around two-story verandahs, and the rose and perennial gardens, the Hummingbird Inn will be a case of love at first sight.
"The original main room (circa 1780) is now a welcoming rustic den, complete with open fireplace, original heartwood pine flooring, and black powder shotgun hanging over the mantle...a warm place to cozy up with a good book. In studied contrast, the rest of the Inn reflects the early Victorian era when the building was expanded to its current size and style. The 1853 solarium, its white wicker chairs bathed in sunlight, provides a bright, tranquil area for morning coffee or afternoon tea.
"From "skip-lunch" full country breakfasts to romantic four-course continental candlelight dinners (including a complimentary bottle of wine), dining is a very special experience at The Hummingbird Inn.
"Two of the Inn's four guest rooms, "Eleanor" and "Franklin, " commemorate the 1935 visit of Eleanor Roosevelt, but each room has its own special character. Eleanor is furnished with an antique bird's-eye maple furniture suite, and Martha, on the original second floor of the house, features a pencil-post canopied bed, fireplace, and double Jacuzzi. From Franklin's window, an ancient boxwood tree frames the view of the Inn's old Goshen Livery stable. The spacious Teter-Wood room, with private entrance, is named for the Inn's former owner and offers garden views, a private door to the verandah, and lullabies from a backyard trout stream.
"Area attractions include nearby historic Lexington, site of the Stonewall Jackson house and Lee Memorial Chapel, and Goshen Pass, a spectacular rocky gorge just minutes away."
